143 Rangers-Islanders in review

I’m not going to attempt to talk some of you off the ledge. You’re nuts if you are in a panic over this little slide here. And if I knew a bookie, I’d put down a bet that the Rangers, because of who they are this year, will respond in…

527 Guest blogger Eric Nova: Rangers-Penguins in review

(Ed. note: Eric Nova writes his own Rangers blog which you can see at http://www.ericnyr.blogspot.com) Thoughts: Teams with lots of highly skilled and speedy players have proven to be very dangerous to the Rangers. NYR’s grinding and fore-checking game is a great thing when run right. There were glimpses of…

592 Rangers-Blackhawks in review

 Thoughts: 1) How the byfuglien are the Byfuglien-less Blackhawks where they are? … and how did they lose nine in a row? … Not that they were great in this game. They sure weren’t. They got a bunch of gifts in the first period, the benefit of some calls, a…

478 Rangers-Capitals in review

Thoughts: 1) This sure wasn’t the most exciting game ever played. But you know what? Ya boys don’t mind that either. Want to grind? Want to make it a battle for chances? Fine with them. Afterwards, John Tortorella said this is the type of game the Rangers expect to have…

100 Rangers-Flyers in review

Thoughts: 1) So the Flyers are frustrated, losing seven in a row, including all five this year, to the Best Team in the East? Well, maybe they should stop playing all those idiots and understand that the Rangers not only won’t be intimidated, but they’ll be happy to play that…

197 Rangers-Flyers in review

I truly believe that these four wins over the Flyers won’t mean jack-squat if the Rangers wind up in a playoff series against them. It doesn’t work that way. But I also truly believe that the Rangers are better. And here’s the thing. The Flyers have more skill. The Rangers…

17 Post-game interviews

First this: The Rangers will (or maybe they have already) send tapes of Brandon Prust’s fight with Tom Sestito to the league for review. At the very least, they believe Sestito pulled Prust’s hair — which was pretty obvious from the replays. At the worst, there’s the possibity that Sestito…

213 Rangers-Devils in review

What can you do? The Rangers sure have gotten their share of last-minute wins this year, and a few bounces along the way. This one was one horrible bounce, then a puck sliding across the goal line, then one of those unfortunate breakaway contests they sometimes hold after the hockey…

130 Back to the hockey season

I’m back from my little, ahem, vacation. Got the cleanest garage in the Northeast. Anyway, I guess the All-star game was as good as it could have been from a Rangers standpoint, with all ya boys — MVP Marian Gaborik, Henrik Lundqvist, Dan Girardi, Smilin’ John Tortorella and Carl Hagelin…

308 It’s Go Time! … All-star game

And to celebrate the All-star game in Kanata, Ontario, the Empire State Building today will be lit completely in Orange crud to honor Claude Giroux, Kimo Timonen, Scott Hartnell, and of course Ed Snider and Comcast and the Broad Street Bullies. … with the complete approval of the NHL, of…

180 It’s Go Time … All-star skills competition night

No, not those skills competitions. Not those breakaway contests that they sometimes hold AFTER the hockey game ends. Tonight is the real skills competition, featuring the NHL’s all-stars, including ya boys, Henrik Lundqvist, Marian Gaborik, Carl “Haggar” Hagelin (who may be faster than Gaborik, according to a tweet by Gaborik)…

38 Skills competition tonight

Here are the rosters, and the story from Dan Rosen of NHL.com. NHL.com also has some video of interviews from media day yesterday, including John Tortorella trying to say absolutely nothing, until the questions turn to Dan Girardi. Then Tortorella can’t say enough good things. We’ll do a “Go Time”…

219 Rangers-Bruins in review

Hockey Gods. John Tortorella referenced the Hockey Gods the one night this week, when Marian Gaborik was incorrectly called for a double-minor penalty when one opponent’s stick. and not Gaborik’s, hit the face of another opponent. And the Rangers, rightly, killed the penalties. Tortorella said the Hockey Gods have a…

202 Rangers-Penguins in review

Thoughts: 1) I said it before and I’ll say it again (though I’m sure it won’t placate any of the NNs, or Chicken Littles, the “fire Torts” gang or plain old trolls. If losing three out of five is as bad as it gets, or even four out of six,…

169 Rangers-Predators in review (updated)

Bizarre night topped by Jim Dolan, all smiles and giggles, popping into John Tortorella’s press conference. I think what happened is that Dolan was in Tortorella’s office and the coach asked him if he wanted to do the press conference instead of Torts. And Dolan took the dare and went…

Game 41. After tonight’s game the Rangers will be halfway through their season. Ya boys have won five in a row and 10 of 11, and lead the entire National freakin’ Hockey League in points. Three of their players — Henrik Lundqvist, Marian Gaborik and Dan Girardi were named today…
